The US’ LSI Logic Corporation has announced plans to set up a semi-conductor design and engineering development centre at Dubai Silicon Oasis (DSO). The centre, which will be completed by the end of 2006, is the first substantial knowledge-transfer endorsement to be won by the DSO since its establishment as an independent free zone authority earlier this year. ‘We think we are better than China and India, a bridge for Western Europe and the US,’ DSO chief executive officer Juergen Knorr told MEED on 26 September at the Gitex exhibition in Dubai. ‘Hong Kong, Singapore and Taiwan all served as bridgeheads for development of research and manufacturing and the goal is to replicate this.’
